    Does anyone want to set the rules for a challenge with this stuff?

    Ok, I hate to bash anyone so I will try to stick to the points!

    I ordered their sample months ago with the hope of carrying the product on my site.

    1)Delivery of the sample was very slow comming.

    2) The product is fine, just as advertised.

    I wanted to see how easy it was to use so I had a building I got for practicly nothing at the train show because it was missing a panel from the bottom rear. (You remember the table accross from me Andy?)
    Well I cut and sanded a piece to fit, glued it in place and painted it, etc....
    The product was very easy to work with. Here are some pictures of the building. Notice the gray section at the bottom of the back side.


    Front of building


    I added details such as doors and fire excapes, light and ivy.

    Bottom line, the taskboard was good to work with and sand and paint.

    Now for the down side!
    When I went to order, The minimum purchase was 200 pcs. of each at retailer price.
    I asked about getting just a few of each to see how they sold on my site, and the shipping cost was as high as the retail cost. I will not be carrying that product.
    If you can find a Wall-mart or Michael`s that has it you will be better off than ordering through them.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    I know that some of us were waiting a number of weeks to get theirs. I got mine is just about a week. My guess is the free samples only go out about once a month.

    Nothing came over the pond to me, so it's not only 'probably a Canadian thing' but a british thing as well!

    How'd you get the textures and stuff on it? I was expecting a little more than recycled cardboard....

    And mine took over a month to get to me.

    The recycled cardboard was my impression after working with the stuff. I am not going to say it is a bad product however I don't think it is anything "special". I also tried to do the steam trick to make a curve in the piece and it did not work. Ah well, on to the next free item!
